This is a divisional of U.S. application Ser. No. 10/306,648 filed on Nov. 26, 2002 now U.S. Pat. No. 6,982,004.

BACKGROUND

This invention relates to an apparatus and method for electrostatic loading of a drug onto an implantable medical device such as a stent.

FIG. 1 illustrates a stent 10 having a conventional design of struts 12 interconnected by connecting elements 14. Struts 12 and connecting elements 14 are separated by gaps 16. Stent 10 is generally cylindrical and radially compressible. Compressible embodiments of stent 10 can be balloon expandable or self-expandable. Although stents work well mechanically, the chronic issues of restenosis and, to a lesser extent, thrombosis remain a significant clinical problem. These events are affected and made worse by the degree of injury and the hemodynamic disturbance caused by the stent. In order to more effectively treat these conditions, pharmacological therapy can be used in conjunction with stent therapy. Maintaining the necessary drug concentration at the lesion site for the necessary period of time remains a challenge, however. This can be done with brute force methods using oral or intravenous administration but the issues of systemic toxicity and side effects arise. Therefore, a preferred route can be achieved by local delivery of drug from the stent itself.

Being made of metal, plain stents are not useful for drug delivery. To serve as a drug reservoir, a coating, usually of a polymer, is applied by dipping or spraying the stent. A solution of a polymer dissolved in a solvent and a therapeutic substance added thereto is applied to the stent and the solvent is allowed to evaporate. A polymeric coating impregnated with a therapeutic substance then remains on the surface of the stent.

This manufacturing process can consume large quantities of solvent and process time. This process can also reduce the capability of batch processing (e.g., processing large stent quantities in single production runs) since each stent is individually sprayed with or dipped into the coating solution. Accordingly, a stent coating process is desired that reduces waste solvent and process time and can facilitate batch processing.

SUMMARY

A method of depositing a therapeutic substance on a stent is disclosed comprising ionizing a therapeutic substance; applying an electrical charge to a stent; and exposing the electrically charged stent to the ionized therapeutic substance. The therapeutic substance can be ionized by introducing a gas in a pressure chamber; applying pulsed bias voltage to a mesh tube surrounding the stent; applying RF power to a coil surrounding the mesh tube to produce electrons; and introducing the therapeutic substance into the chamber. The therapeutic substance can be introduced in bursts. The bias voltage applied to the mesh tube and the RF power can be turned off during the application of the electrical charge to the stent. The stent can be pre-coated with a primer layer.

A method for depositing a drug on a stent is disclosed comprising positioning a stent on a mandrel within a chamber, the mandrel being surrounded by a mesh tube and a coil; introducing a gas into the chamber; applying an RF power to the coil to produce electrons; applying an electrical charge to the mesh tube to collect the electrons around the stent; applying an electrical charge to the stent while terminating the application of the RF power to the coil and the electrical charge to the mesh tube; and supplying a drug into the chamber for ionizing the drug so that the drug is attracted to the stent. The drug can be supplied into the chamber by an inert carrier gas.

A method for depositing a drug onto a stent is disclosed comprising directing a drug towards a stent and operating a system including a coil surrounding the stent for charging the drug so that the drug is attracted to and deposited onto the stent. An electrical charge can be applied to the stent. In some embodiments, the system additionally includes a collecting member next to the stent, the collecting member capable of receiving a charge for collecting charged particles around the stent.

A method for depositing a drug onto a stent is disclosed comprising directing a charged drug towards a stent and operating a system including a collecting member positioned adjacent to the stent for collecting the charged drug around the stent. In some embodiments, the collecting member can be a mesh tube surrounding the stent. The method can include applying a charge to the stent and/or the collecting member.

DESCRIPTION OF THE DRAWINGS

FIG. 1 illustrates a conventional stent.

FIG. 2 is a schematic illustration of an embodiment of the coating system.

FIG. 3 is one embodiment of the mesh tube in which a stent can be placed surrounded by an RF coil.

FIG. 4 is one embodiment of the stent, mesh tube, and RF coil inside of a pressure chamber.

DETAILED DESCRIPTION

FIG. 2 illustrates an embodiment of an agent loading apparatus 18, which includes a chamber 20 housing a stent support apparatus or mandrel 22 for supporting stent 10. Mandrel 22 is placed in electrical contact with an electrical feed 24 within chamber 20. Any suitable chamber 20 can be used, for example chambers that have electrical feed 24 mounted on a KF-40 flange (MDC, Hayward, Calif.). In one embodiment, as illustrated in FIG. 3, a grid or mesh tube 26 can circumscribe mandrel 22 and stent 10. Grid 26 can extract the electrons within the mesh tube and increase the uniformity of the coating surface. Grid 26 can have a tube diameter DG of about 2.5 cm and a thickness of about 0.1 mm. The surface area of the cylinder formed by grid or mesh tube 26 can be about 90% open voids and about 10% mesh. Mesh tube 26 can be connected to a second electrical feed, or can share electrical feed 24 with mandrel 22. An RF coil 28 circumscribes grid 26. The diameter Dc of the coil can be about 5.1 cm.

Referring again to FIG. 2, a gas feed line 30 is in fluid communication with chamber 20 and a loading cavity 32, which in turn is in fluid communication with chamber 20. Loading cavity 32 holds the drugs in powder form. Closeable gates or valves 34 can be used to control the flow of the gas. A pump 36 can also be in fluid communication with chamber 20. Pump 36 can be a turbo pump, a mechanical rough pump, or a cryo pump. A particulate trap 38 can be disposed between pump 36 and chamber 20. One example of trap 38 is a Coaxial 4-line/Roughing Trap (from Varian Inc., Tempe, Ariz.) that attaches to a KF-40 flange. Trap 38 can minimize contamination in the exhaust from reaching pump 36. Trap 38 can filter particles from of up to, for example 10 microns (0.4 mils) in diameter.

One of ordinary skill in the art can understand that a plurality of stents 10 can be loaded onto mandrels 22 placed within chamber 20 in a grid-like or similar configuration to enable batch processing of stents 10. Additionally the medical device need not be limited to stents and a variety of other medical devices which need to be modified to delivery a drug can also be used.

A gas such as argon is introduced into chamber 20 and the pressure is maintained at about 50 to 100 mTorr. A pulsed bias of up to, for example, 50 V is applied to grid 26 while an RF power of, for example, 100 W at a frequency of 13.56 MHz is applied to initiate formation of electrons. Electrons are produced in chamber 20 while grid 26 collects the electrons around stent 10. Loading cavity 32 holds the drug in powder form having particles from about 1 micron (0.04 mils) to about 5 microns (0.2 mils) in diameter. The drug should be electrophilic to facilitate charging of the particles.

A carrier gas can then flow from gas feed line 30 through loading cavity 32, carrying the drug through gate 34 and into chamber 20. The gas should be inert to the biological properties of the drug. For example, gasses of helium, nitrogen, argon, neon, xenon, krypton, or combinations thereof can be used as the carrier. The drug is supplied in bursts, such as in 500 millisecond bursts into chamber 20 which, in effect, can raise the pressure in the chamber up to for example, 500 mTorr. The gas can be introduced at any temperature from about absolute zero to an upper limit temperature of the drug. The upper limit temperature of the drug is defined as the temperature above which the active agent begins to undergo substantial changes that permanently alter its biological efficacy. The upper limit temperature can be determined by one having ordinary skill in the art for each respective drug. Gate 34 can be opened and closed manually, or gate 34 can be closed automatically, for example when the pressure across gate 34 drops below a pre-determined level entered into a gate controller. The pulsed bias applied to grid 26 and RF power are tuned off and a pulsed bias is applied to stent 10 via mandrel 22, for example up to about 50 KV. As a result, the ionized drug is deposited on stent 10.

Stent 10 can be pre-coated with an appropriate coating, for example a carbon pre-coating or deposits or a primer polymer layer, to help adhere the substance to stent 10. The particles can then be compacted onto the surface of stent 10 or on the primer layer. It is believed that this coating method may produce a coating with a thickness from about 0.25 microns (0.0098 mils) to about 3 microns (0.1 mils) with a uniformity with less than about 5% variation in thickness.

Agent loading apparatus 18 and the coating method described herein can be used in conjunction with rotary atomizer or spray chilling apparatuses that coat stent 10 with polymers or polymer and agent combinations. Agent loading apparatus 18 can load an agent onto stent 10 before stent 10 is coated with a polymer or polymer and agent topcoating by a different process. The use of the inventive process and a complementary process can minimize the use of solvents for the agent application processes and enable the coating of large quantities of stents 10 in single batches.

The substance loaded onto the stent can be, for example, any drug capable of inhibiting abnormal or inappropriate migration and/or proliferation of smooth muscle cells for the prevention or inhibition of restenosis. The drug can also be capable of exerting a therapeutic or prophylactic effect such as for example enhancing wound healing in a vascular site or improving the structural and elastic properties of the vascular site.

While particular embodiments of the present invention have been shown and described, it will be obvious to those skilled in the art that changes and modifications can be made without departing from this invention in its broader aspects. Therefore, the appended claims are to encompass within their scope all such changes, modifications, and combinations as fall within the true spirit and scope of the invention.
